Well, it looks like famous brands are starting to release high-end devices with Google’s latest operating system, 6.0 Marshmallow. So, HTC has unveiled its new One A9, which runs the new operating system.
Even if the new phone is part of the company’s top-end One family, the A9 comes with low specs and a different design. Moreover, this phone is probably a cheaper alternative to the famous One M9 series.
However, HTC One A9 comes with a full-HD 5-inch display, an octa-core processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a fingerprint reader that is hidden in a physical home button and an all-metal design.
Since its release, everyone has been claiming that the new HTC One A9 looks similar to the iPhone 6. Is that true? Well, it looks kind of similar, but this doesn’t mean that HTC had wanted to copy the design of Apple’s phone. HTC One A9 looks pretty good and packs some interesting features that will certainly attract a lot of clients. The new device is available at the price of 399 dollars, which is a fair price, but customers should be aware, as this is just a launch promotion. After November 7, the new HTC One A9 will have the price of 499 dollars.
Its price range will put HTC One A9 in a direct battle with LG G4 and Moto X Play. Probably, at this amount of money, users will not get the features and performance that they might expect, but for everyday use, this phone could be perfect.
As it was earlier mentioned, this device comes with a 5-inch full HD display and 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution. It also has an all-metal body and is available in dark gray, gold and silver colors. An interesting feature is the fingerprint reader that is hidden under the physical home button. The scanner works pretty well and it is accurate and fast. Users just have to place their finger on the scanner and the phone will wake from standby.
The most attractive part it that HTC One A9 works with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow software, meaning that users will have the latest and most updated apps. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, which is perfect for general navigation.
